The Watershed, a premier drug and alcohol treatment center in South Florida treating patients from all over the country, officially treated its 40,000th patient on Saturday, July 20th, 2013, a milestone that few drug rehab facilities can attest to.

Since opening its doors in 1998, The Watershed has become a trusted source of hope and healing for those battling with drug and alcohol addiction. For over 15 years, the Watershed Treatment Center has offered a wide range of services, including medical detoxification, inpatient rehab, outpatient programs, and sober living communities. Their full continuum of care program has rebuilt the lives of thousands affected by drug abuse and alcoholism.

“Treating 40,000 patients for alcohol and drug dependency is a huge accomplishment for The Watershed,” said Chris Crosby, President and CEO of The Watershed. “More importantly and meaningful to our treatment center than just the number treated, are the actual lives that we have truly touched and transformed. Many patients walk into our facility feeling hopeless and overwhelmed by their addiction and leave with a sense of newfound freedom. It’s always exciting for The Watershed staff to witness the beginning of a new chapter in our patients’ lives - one that we hope is filled with continued sobriety and success.”

The dedicated staff of The Watershed, which is comprised of professional doctors, psychologists, nurses, therapists, and numerous individuals who are in recovery themselves, has played an intricate role in the center’s success in treating thousands of addicts and alcoholics. “The Watershed team is compassionate and understanding,” said Crosby. “They truly want to see each and every one of our patients succeed in their journey to recovery. Our staff is committed to providing clients with all of the necessary tools available to battle substance abuse, including personalized treatment programs and a safe, comfortable environment.”

The Watershed has treated 40,000 patients and shows no signs of slowing down, as drug and alcohol addiction continues to affect thousands of lives nationwide. According to the 2011 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an estimated 20.6 million Americans were classified with substance dependence or abuse. “The statistics for current addiction paint a bleak picture, but I’m looking toward the future, and it’s bright for those seeking treatment from substance abuse,” said Crosby. “I truly believe that with the assistance of The Watershed, many more people with drug and alcohol addictions will reach their ultimate goal: sobriety.”
